    In trying to condense my work area, DH came up with this idea. It may not work for everyone but I love it-and there is chocolate in my room 24/7!

    Oh that is cool.

    I use my dining room table because it's where I quilt. In fact my machine and two quilts have been set up for over 2 months. We now eat in front of the tv and no one is complaining. Wish I had a BIGGER HOUSE. Lord hear my prayers.

    That's nice! Is the ironing surface attached to the table? Is there any heat transfer through the board? I would be afraid that the heat would warp my cutting surface over time or is the cutting board removable? May I copy your idea?

    Good Idea !

    VIRTUALBERNIE - looks like the ironing board is a separate BOARD which should not get to the cutting surface. Plywood (or whatever she has) looks pretty thick.

    Copy away! Yes, the candy bars are the ironing surface. The cutting mat is not attatched. The cutting area is 1/2" thick and I've had no problems with it. I put down heavy duty foil, cotton batting and cotton fabric.

    Made sure to attach the ironing surface with four small hinges so the mat wouldn't slide through. I did put contact paper on the table top just so it would look nicer-an idea from sis Dingle. The rest is just painted 2 x 4's. I love it!

    Great ideas and I bet the table is at a comfortable height for you to work! The ironing board fabric is so cute :-)
